Google has released a brand new music service, called Google Music – a cloud-based music streaming service which has some of the world’s biggest record companies behind it.
Google Music -the low down…
Google Music has been launched in the U.S and major record labels including: Sony Music Entertainment, Universal and EMI along with a host of independent labels are all supporting it. Meaning, there’ll be a library of around 13 million tracks to enjoy and some labels could even release exclusive tracks via Google Music, which could make it the place to hear new music first!
Tracks can be sampled before you buy, thanks to it’s 90 seconds preview feature. And, reports suggest songs will start from as little as 56 pence and it doesn’t stop there, as there’ll be a FREE song of the day. Sounds sweet doesn’t it?
Android 2.2 smartphones users will be able to listen to their music without being hooked up to the internet and the Google Music Android app will let users log into their account, adjust their settings, and listen to any of the millions of tracks available. With it’s 320kpbs sound quality Google Music sounds sweeter by the minute.
Google+ will allow music fans to share music, as it can let your friends know about the music you’ve bought, and allow them to play through the entire album once. A great way to discover new music – don’t you agree?
